Psalms 138 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 138

The psalmist praises God for answering prayer. (1-5) The Lord's dealing with the humble and the proud. (6-8)

Verses 1-5 When we can praise God with our whole heart, we need not be unwilling for the whole world to witness our gratitude and joy in him. Those who rely on his loving-kindness and truth through Jesus Christ, will ever find him faithful to his word. If he spared not his own Son, how shall he not with him freely give us all things? If God gives us strength in our souls, to bear the burdens, resist the temptations, and to do the duties of an afflicted state, if he strengthens us to keep hold of himself by faith, and to wait with patience for the event, we are bound to be thankful.

Verses 6-8 Though the Lord is high, yet he has respect to every lowly, humbled sinner; but the proud and unbelieving will be banished far from his blissful presence. Divine consolations have enough in them to revive us, even when we walk in the midst of troubles. And God will save his own people that they may be revived by the Holy Spirit, the Giver of life and holiness. If we give to God the glory of his mercy, we may take to ourselves the comfort. This confidence will not do away, but quicken prayer. Whatever good there is in us, it is God works in us both to will and to do. The Lord will perfect the salvation of every true believer, and he will never forsake those whom he has created anew in Christ Jesus unto good works.

Psalms 138 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

PSALM 138

Psalms 138:1-8 . David thanks God for His benefits, and anticipating a wider extension of God's glory by His means, assures himself of His continued presence and faithfulness.

1. I will praise thee with my whole heart--(Compare Psalms 9:1 ).
before the gods--whether angels ( Psalms 8:5 ); or princes ( Exodus 21:6 , Psalms 82:6 ); or idols ( Psalms 97:7 ); denotes a readiness to worship the true God alone, and a contempt of all other objects of worship.

2. (Compare Psalms 5:7 ).
thy word above all thy name--that is, God's promise ( 2 Samuel 7:12-16 ), sustained by His mercy and truth, exceeded all other manifestations of Himself as subject of praise.

3-5. That promise, as an answer to his prayers in distress, revived and strengthened his faith; and, as the basis of other revelations of the Messiah, it will be the occasion of praise by all who hear and receive it ( Psalms 68:29 Psalms 68:31 , Isaiah 4:3 ).

5. for great is the glory--or, "when the glory shall be great," in God's fulfilling His purposes of redemption.

6, 7. On this general principle of God's government ( Isaiah 2:11 , 57:15 , 66:2 ), he relies for God's favor in saving him, and overthrowing his enemies.
knoweth afar off--their ways and deserts ( Psalms 1:6 ).

8. God will fulfil His promise.
